Razer's not one to let a huge chunk of time fly by without introducing a new mouse. This week, it's introducing the updated Razer Orochi mobile gaming mouse, which boasts a 6400dpi sensor. Moreover, it relies on Bluetooth 3.0, and gets powered by two AA batteries that are optimized for extended life, doubling the battery life of its predecessor with up to 30 hours of continuous gameplay or three months of conventional usage. The company also claims that the sensor trumps just about everything else out there, and if you're looking to stuff someone's stocking, you can get one now (globally) for $69.99.... Read more...
The gaming peripheral gurus at Razer announced today the revamping of its popular DeathAdder mouse, though don't worry if you've grown accustomed to the original model, this isn't a complete redesign. Instead, Razer focused its efforts on upgrading the sensor and making the side grips more comfortable. "We didn’t want to fix anything that wasn’t broken," said Robert Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We focused instead on enhancing and optimizing the proven merits of the Razer DeathAdder, utilizing next generation technologies and further ergonomics tweaks to make a perfect gaming mouse...

A poster on an overclocking forum is drawing widespread Internet attention over claims that Razer's Naga mouse requires a persistent Internet connection in order for it to work properly. The special drivers supposedly require that Naga owners create an account with Razer before they're allowed to configure the mouse, and if Razer's servers go down -- as they were when "channelx99" tried to activate his account -- well, tough luck. Channelx99 is referring to Razer's Synapse 2.0 software in his forum post. Without it, you can still use the Naga mouse, you just can't customize all those fancy extra... Read more...
Razer announced its 2013/14 line of Razer mouse mats. The lineup includes four new mouse mats: the Razer Invicta, Razer Manticor, Razer Destructor 2, and Razer Megasoma 2. All four of these mats are treated with new performance-boosting sensor-reactive surface coatings. Razer takes its mouse mats seriously and has made sure each of these new mouse mats will work well with optical, laser and dual-sensor mice. The company puts the mouse mats through rigorous testing including mouse sensor lift-off, acceleration and precision tests to ensure the surface textures offer precise glide and control. Razer's...

When it comes to gaming laptops, not a whole lot has changed in the past 10 years. They've got a little thinner, the battery life is a bit better, and they're obviously more powerful. But overall, a gaming laptop is a gaming laptop. Razer set out to change that with the original "Blade," and now the second installment of the Blade is ready for public judgment. It's the next-generation Blade, which offers the newest line of Intel quad-core processors, NVIDIA's GTX-class graphics and the "fastest RAM available." The new edition is just 0.88" thick, which is wildly thin for a gaming beast, and it... Read more...
Well, don't these just look cozy? Perhaps more outlandish than cozy, but we'd sure wrap 'em around our ears. Razer has introduced its newest gaming headset, the BlackShark. It's a stereo gaming headset that's said to be inspired by tactical aviator headsets, and the design similarities are fairly obvious. It comes as a Razer-branded version of the popular Battlefield 3 Razer BlackShark, a headset that the company developed from the ground up for the Battlefield franchise and released earlier this year at E3. The company claims that this thing was developed to make the wearer feel like your average... Read more...
Razer has given birth to what it proudly claims is "the world's smartest keyboard." Bold statements such as that one are always up for debate, but Razer's new DeathStalker Ultimate is certainly unique in the fact that it combines a high-performance gaming plank with the company's Switchblade User Interface (UI). It boasts the same customizable LCD trackpad and LED keypad combo found on the Razer Blade laptop and Star Wars: The Old Republic gaming keyboard. There are 10 dynamic, adaptive tactile keys users can bind commands to, as well as macros, skills, spells, and other functions. "With the Switchblade... Read more...
The busy bodies at Razer apparently skipped taking a summer vacation this year and instead focused on pumping out new and updated gaming peripherals. In addition to its ambidextrous Ourboros mouse that was just announced, Razer is also getting ready for the return of its BlackWidow mechanical keyboard line with new two updated models and a brand new Tournament Edition plank. First up is Razer's BlackWidow 2013. It's an improved version of the original with heightened anti-ghosting that supports up to 10 simultaneous key presses in game mode, Razer Synapse 2.0 cloud technology that allows gamers...

Razer's new Ourboros mouse for gamers might be the funkiest looking rodent this side of the planet Ork, but it's with comfort and ergonomics in mind that the peripheral maker designed it. What's more, left-handed gamers will be thrilled to know Razer didn't play favorites with this particular mouse, which sports an ambidextrous design. "Designed for excellence and total ownage, the Razer Ouroboros was intended to be wielded by all serious gamers looking to win any FPS, RTS or RPG with custom-made dominance," said Robert 'RazerGuy' Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "We are proud to introduce it as... Read more...
Don't ever accuse Razer of being insensitive to the plights of left-handed gamers who don't have nearly as many options for gaming mice as right-handers do. Sympathetic to this fact, Razer just announced its Taipan mouse, an ambidextrous rodent that doesn't care which hand you use to move your line of sight. Hooray for equality. "Razer’s ergonomic scientists collaborated with top e-Sports athletes from professional gaming teams such as Empire, Frenetic Array, Mousesports, Quantic, Rox.Kis and Type II Gaming, to pinpoint the optimal shape, weight, and balance required in an ambidextrous mouse...

PC gamers are sometimes a forgotten and overlooked class of gamers, shoved aside by peripheral manufacturers in favor of a growing legion of our console brethren. But fear not if you prefer the PC platform, Razer has your back, especially if you live and breathe Battlefield 3. Launched today is Razer's new Battlefield 3 BlackShark 2.0 Gaming Headset for PC. "The Razer BlackShark is a PC gaming headset with crisp audio and booming bass that is built for a highly intense shooter likeBattlefield 3," said Robert ‘RazerGuy’ Krakoff, president of Razer USA. "It lets you hear the gunfire,... Read more...
Hot on the heels of the release of the Naga Hex Red Wraith Edition gaming mouse, Razer announced an update to the Razer Naga MMO gaming mouse. The overhaul of the mouse is meant to improve its overall ergonomics, making it easier and more comfortable to use as well as facilitating better performance. The Naga MMO gaming mouse features an anti-slip and anti-fingerprint matte finish, a trio of interchangeable side panels to allow gamers to choose their preferred contour and grip, and repositioned top buttons that have been moved a bit for better actuation. What hasn’t changed is the 12-button... Read more...
What’s more fun than a gaming mouse? A gaming mouse designed specifically for hacking and slashing games, which is precisely the raison d’etre of the Razer Naga Hex Wraith Red edition. The mouse is equipped with six mechanical side buttons, which are capable of 250 clicks per minute--a spec that is ideal for MOBA and action RPG games. Counting the six side buttons, there eleven total programmable buttons, which is handy for assigning functions germane to conquering enemies. The Razer Naga Hex Wraith Red edition also features a 5600dpi Razer Precision 3.5G Laser Sensor and Razer Synapse... Read more...
Left-handed gamers have traditionally been the red-headed stepchildren of peripheral makers, so to speak. They've been neglected, overlooked, and just plain treated as if they don't exist. There are exceptions, of course, though in the grand scheme of things, left-handed gamers don't have many peripherals to choose from that are specifically tuned for southpaws. The good news is Razer recognizes this and is committed to launching a left-handed version of its Naga MMO gaming mouse. It all started with a Facebook post in which Razer co-founder, CEO, and Creative Director Min-Liang Tan challenged... Read more...
